Museo Regional Pueblo de Luis - Museum Trelew - Argentina

Located in the old railway station, Museo Regional Pueblo de Luis is a good place to while away an afternoon. The small museum features interesting displays on a variety of subjects, including the surrounding indigenous societies, but focuses primarily on the history of the Welsh community that founded the town. You can see artifacts such as antique furniture and personal belongings once belonging to the Welsh families that settled in Trelew. Exhibits are labeled in Spanish and English, and Spanish, English, French, and German guides are available.
